Bride of Frankenstein
Perhaps the most influential cycle of films in cinema history, the Universal Classic Monsters of the ‘30s, ‘40s, and early ‘50s have proven to be immortal—dreamlike, macabre, horrific, atmospheric, haunting, and among the most wonderfully crafted films of all time. Spawning hundreds of knock-offs, sequels, models, comic books, magazines, books, toys, t-shirts, lunch boxes and more, these iconic film masterpieces have had a profound effect on the art and culture of multiple generations of movie fans. Based on the works of famed authors such as Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells and Gaston Leroux—and featuring the filmmaking talents of celebrated directors such as Tod Browning, James Whale, and Jack Arnold, along with legendary actors like Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Claude Rains, Elsa Lanchester, and Lon Chaney, Jr.—these 8 classics are where it all started for genre lovers (and you know who you are!) For the first time in Enzian’s history, all of them can be seen in the same week. Amazing!
One of the most popular horror classics of all time and an acclaimed sequel to the original Frankenstein. The legendary Boris Karloff reprises his role as the screen’s most misunderstood monster who now longs for a mate of his own. Colin Clive is back as the overly ambitious Dr. Frankenstein, who creates the ill-fated bride (Elsa Lanchester). Directed by the original’s James Whale (his last horror film) and featuring a haunting musical score, Bride of Frankenstein ranks as one of the all-time great sequels.
USA, 1935, 75 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by James Whale
